"helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on thi
. each of these countries representing a major national security concern for the united states. sudan gets over $2.5 billion american aid in american aid and that is just over the last four years. tanisha was the birthplace of the arab spring movement. the u.s. is providing it with regular assistance. yemen has received $620 million from america over the last four years. our own reporter, greg, has more in london. reporter: it is supposed to be a holy day of prayer. we have been watching the feeds coming in from all over the word and it is anything but that. violence wracking capital after capital. particularly in the united states. just to give you a little bit more context, as you noted, tanisha is the birthplace of the arab spring. the government ought to be more moderate. something we could depend on. in fact, we have seen extremist elements that work there. at the u.s. embassy there, as well as the nearby schools. the latest word we are getting from them is that security forces have done their jobs. over in sudan, the one-time home of osama bin laden. extremist elements thereto.
in the globe? >> well, suzanne, this is obviously a tragic day for the united states and for the u.s. foreign service. ambassador stevens and his three colleagues were serving our country in the most honorable way. they were out on the frontlines, and it does demonstrate that we have men and women fro the u.s. foreign service from our state department all over the world defending us every single day and so obviously the first thing we have to say today is our hearts go out to their loved ones and their families. it's a tragic day for all americans because this attack came on september 11th, 11 years after that terrible day in american history. >> nick, how do we answer secretary clinton's question when she took -- takes a look at the diplomatic mission and says, you know, we put so much into libya to turn around to have something like this happen? she clearly is trying to say that there is something that we have done that is worth all of this effort, but when you look at what has happened, how much of that is an insult, is a slap to the u.s. people? >> well, you know, suzanne, i really though
.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomorrow and see how that works out. i am certain the images that you are showing on the screen this morning are not representative of the views of the governments and the peoples of those countries. i don't think they want to see this, their countries descend in chaos. >> steve: you were the director of the national intelligence agency, we didn't see this coming, how is that possible in >> first of all as you recall in the arab pring and what happened in tunisia, sometimes these incidents can be sparked by an unanticipatedentio
the united states. you must be tired. you sit, i'll talk. you listen. and so i did. then he said this. and he repeated it again and again. where is american leadership? we need american leadership. where is american leadership? then he'd talk about a region of the world and what was happening in that region. then he'd say where is american leadership? then he'd go to another region and talk about the challenges there. where is american leadership? the world has always looked to us as the shining city on the hill. that light looks dimmer. we keep kicking the challenges down the road and hope someone else will deal with it. that time is now ours. this is the greatest generation that left us this nation so prosperous and so free. now it's our turn. they've held the torch alost for the whole world to see. a torch of freedom, opportunity and hope. they're getting fewer and further between, the greatest generation. they can't hold it quite as high as they used to. it's our turn to grab the torch. when i became president -- [ cheers and applause ] -- we're going to do what we have to do, we're going
. and may god continue to bless the united states of america. thank you. >> and that was secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the state department about tuesday's attack in libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, saying that this is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths and reminding people that the u.s. is a force for peace and progress and that this attack was by a small and savage group of individuals. we remind you that president obama will comment at the white house less than an hour from now. we will also bring you that statement live. this has been a cbs news special report. i'm norah o'donnell along with charlie rose in new york. for those of you in the west, our coverage of this breaking news story continues. >>> good morning. to our viewers in the west, it is wednesday, september 12th, 2012. welcome to ""cbs this morning." the u.s. ambassador to libya has been killed. we'll have complete coverage from the middle east to washington. >>> the white house denies the president is snubbing israel's prime minister
. what has the attention of analysts that the egyptian prime minister morsi pushed the united states for the release of the blibd sheikh, releasing demonstrations at the same site of the u.s. embassy. they tell fox that the egyptian group takes its name from the omar al rack man from the blind sheikh. >> inspired by the first world trade center bombings some it is a group that has been around a long time. it has some staying power clearly since the early '90s and it is a group we have looked at in the past, we have tracked in the past and we'll continue to ask questions in relation to this particular event to see if there is any connection. >> reporter: there the question is whether there is some degree of coordination or whether the demonstration we're seeing like those in yemen this morning are spontaneous. one group of demonstrators feeding off another. the second question is whether the governments that are relatively weak will have the ability to offer the security the united states needs for its embassies in those countries. congressman rogers told fox a pressing question is wh
and egypt follow tuesday night's storming of the united states consulate in the libyan city of benghazi. the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three other staff members were killed in the attack. stevens is the first u.s. ambassador to be killed on duty since 1979. on wednesday, president obama vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the deaths in libya. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we are working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats and have directed my administration to increase security at posts around the world. make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attack our people. >> the obama administration has dispatched an elite group of marines to the libyan capital of tripoli. in addition, two u.s. warships are reportedly headed towards the libyan coast and the u.s. has redeployed surveillance drones over libya. protests against them have also occurred in iraq, iran, tunisia, and bangladesh. >> at the center of the controversy is an online trailer
. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. those are green plants are visible. they are still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce a record detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe under a year. maybe only a few months. the detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of the classroom. it might be difficult to find and target that workshop
things out of control. that is basically the concern of the united states right now to the various countries most dramatically and horrifically in libya. in libya there are many militant groups that have their own autonomy that are not controlled. al qaeda bases believe to be operating training camps believe to be operating in libya itself. perhaps some of those responsible for the death of the u.s. diplomats involved with or came from. new word new reports in addition they have stepped up a grown surveillance operation will be put into place in libya and the search and maybe the targeting of terrorists there. >> we mentioned in addition to egypt and yemen and libya there have been riots in tonenesia and burning of american flags there. what's the status of tunisia? >> tunisia is a country in transition. we blaefed it would be a little more stable than the other countries. you can see by the anger touched off in the streets in the crowd to this movie. we are not getting any reports of new problems. but again thursday, friday the holy day of prayer for the muslim faith a traditional
home and figure out what they will do and the relationship they will have with the united states and control radical islamism in their country. >> congressman allen west will join us for tomorrow for a special edition of justice. definitely the question is, be those governments control the radical islamist. good evening, ambassador. >> good tock with you. >> ambassador, why is this happening? >> i think what is been going across the middle east for the several yearings has been a wave of radical islamism. a high loo politicizing version of an extreme interpretation of the muslim religion and it is it gaining force it most vividly in the terrorist actions that hes bollah and hamas. and we see it as the 18 months of what some people thought was arab spring. it was not a democracy movement and may have been against the rulers in libya and tunisia and else where. but it was not for a swift democracy. the proof is in the streets that's threat we face. >> this is it a country we help tod liberate. benghazi is a city that we defended. how could we not have known that based on the instan
there are disagreements. there ought to be disagreements there are huge disagreements. the president of the united states should not kowtow to the egyptian president about some movie. the problem the united states government has said by leading with this question of this film, which is sort of this bogus pretext. it may have been the instigator for the rally but the united states government should not be having a discussion with mohammed morsi, a 9/11 truther about some crazy film made by kooky director which has nothing to do what is actually going on at this point. we legitimize, i'm afraid, the notion that this film actually matters to the entire discussion when in fact the real problem is with the egyptian government. there are real questions why the security forces that have helped protect the u.s. embassy in cairo simply melted away in the face of the attacks. the participants, ayman al-zawahiri being one of the leaders in that protest. there are serious questions. i hope they're being resolved in private because they're not being discussed in public. bill: meantime you have a campaign that will pl
, calling ambassador chris stevens an exemplary representative for the united states and gave his life for our country. welcome to "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. martha: good morning. bill. i'm martha macallum. a killing after u.s. ambassador, a violent event we have not seen in decades. how will the president react to this and also to the violence breaking out in egypt. bill: that is another attack on the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt. this is video from there. [shouting] martha: protesters scaling the walls in cairo, tearing down the american flag, replacing it with a black islamic banner, similar to the one used by al qaeda. bill: want to start now. team fox coverage. greg palkot live in london. ed henry live at the white house. reaction from both. want to start with greg overseas. what is the latest there, greg? >> reporter: bill, martha, minute by minute we're piecing more details of the incident in libya. we know about the tragic deaths there, u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens was killed. second individual identified, his name was sean smith. very important informati
after a very specific time p type of voter. and a new warning that puts the united states really sort of in a greek myth, between the ultimate rock and a hard place. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erwin burnet. outfront tonight, we have breaking news. an american we can confirm now has been killed in libya tonight at the consulate, according to a libyan interior ministry official. this is a horrible result of a day of violence against america in the middle east. armed men stormed the american consulate in benghazi libya, tonight, setting it on fire after a protest against an american-produced movie they say insults the prophet, mohammed. this was just hours after egyptian protesters scaled the was of the american embassy in cairo, tearing down the american flag. the protesters there tried to raise a black flag, with the words "there is no god, but alla and mohammed is his messenger." we're in cairo with the latest on the situation. ian, obviously, we're sad to confirm that breaking news on an american who has been killed and the violence in libya. but the outburs
rab world. mo muhammad morsi made those comments ahead of his trips to the united states and says that the u.s. needs to show a greater respect to arab values and culture. reports say that he attempted to meet with president obama at the white house, but dropped that request later. >> absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled anybody involved in this. >> the obama administration has taken a lot of heat on what is happening in libya. republicans are calling the way the attack was handled, quote, a debacle. thank you, very much, great to see you. i would like to start -- >> good to be here. >> with a quote from senator bob corker, briefed by secretary of state clinton and several intelligence leaders late last week about the attacks on benghazi and what was happening in egypt. he said, this is a direct quote -- that was the most useless, worthless briefing i have attended in a long time. this from a senator, not prone it overstatement. what's your take on that? >> i agree. we also in the house received the same briefing. i don't know if they said the same things, but
and iran is able to defend itself. look for delegations like the united states to walk out once again as soon as he starts criticizing israel. bill: there were stunning comments from pakistan's president last night. what was spoken there, jonathan? >> reporter: this is pretty extraordinary, bill. it reported on fox report but appeared to slip under the radar for a lot of media outlets because it was one of the final speeches of the day. just hours after president obama at the same podium called for tolerance and called for leaders of the muslim world to outright condemn the violence against u.s. interests that we've seen over the past couple of weeks, the pakistani president walked up to that podium, failed utterly to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the pea
't expect to survive the assault. this man, speaking in english, accuses the united states of attacking islam. >> reporter: the september 14 nighttime raid was the mos destructive enemy attack in the decade-long afghanistan war. ur insurgents armed with automatic weapons and rocket- propelled grenades destroyed six harrier jets and attacked fueling stations. these pictures, taken by the taliban the morning after the ertack, show fires continuing to burn. all but one of the enemy fighters were killed, but so were two u.s. marines. sergeant bradley atwell and lieutenant colonel christopher raible died during the hours long fire fight that ended the assault. the video was e-mailed to the media by a taliban spokesman so it's impossible to tell from the tape when or where it was made or if the men in the video, scott, actually took part in the attack. >> pelley: bob, thanks very much. the u.n. secretary general, ban ki-moon, had asked iran's esesident not to say anything derogatory about israel during srat general assembly meeting this week. well, mahmoud ahmadinejad ignored that today. he c
's effort. jon: what do they get out of it? is it iranian oil, is it tweaking the united states? >> reporter: it's both of those but they are acting in their own interest. as every nation should. we sometimes apologize for acting in our best interests. but russia and china view it as important to their agenda to block the sanctions in a meaningful way. jon: president obama said he would do whatever it takes to keep iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. will we? >> not under his administration, that is for sure. he's been saying this all openings are on the table for three and a half years and it just has no credibility at this point. the israelis don't believe him, the iranians don't believe him, the russians and the chinese don't believe him. that's why i believe ahmadinejad comes from a place of confidence because his overall stra teak eupblstrategic objectives can be well undertaken. the u.s. issued a statement this morning they weren't attending because it's yom kippur a hole who hwho he lee faith for the jewish faith. i think the u.s. delegation should have walked out on monday when mahm
illegal even here in the united states. in other words, the president of pakistan, one of our supposed allies, is calling for the united nations to enact international law that would trump the u.s. constitution. jon? jon: what a world. jonathan hunt, thanks. arthel: the road to victory in 2012 winding through ohio and the push for votes in this key swing state is kicking into high gear. president obama campaigning in ohio today less than a week before early voting gets underway. he'll be holding campus rallies at bowling green state university and kent state this afternoon hoping to drum up support among young voters. the republican campaign is crisscrossing the state on a three-day bus tour. governor romney today blasting the president's foreign policy and his handling of the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year going down, down, down, and prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline having doubled, these are tough times even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. i care about the people of america, and the
make him shudder. >> i shudder as a gun owner, seeing his record when he was in the united states senate, what would he do if he never has to face the voters ever again? the next president will appoint a lot of different judges and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our 2nd amendment rights you need a president who respects those rights as well. >> dave: in the president's defense he has not touched gun legislation in any way, shape or form, but of course the fear is, from paul ryan and folks, if you give him four terms-- another term, four years, unchecked without having to face this, maybe he'll touch gun legislation. there's been no indication of that in the last three years of yet. >> alisyn: and he's saying what candidate obama said in 2008 reveals his true thinking about it. >> dave: and that was of course at a private fundraiser with a camera he didn't realize was there. >> alisyn: when will we learn. >> clayton: the 47% comment. that's where that came from. >> alisyn: in other words, phones now have cameras on them? >> shocking, i
remained the same though. the united states saying that it is not drawing any red lines. secretary clinton saying we are not setting any deadline. she also said the sanctions seem to be having an effect. martha, again worth noting, one israeli official speaking in jerusalem is fearful that the iranians may take some comfort in the u.s. position and may use the u.s. position to buy more time, possibly to build a nuclear bomb. martha? martha: that is troublesome. also syria, of course is such a part of this whole die namic. that is on the agenda at the u.n. what do we expect there? >> reporter: that's right. there will be a meeting today sort of on the sidelines of the general assembly. it will be hosted by secretary of state hillary clinton. it is a meeting of the friends of syria. it will be attended by ministers of some 20 countries. the purpose of this meeting essentially to show support for the syrian opposition and to address the humanitarian concerns. the risch shan foreign minister is going to speak today. likely he will talk about syria. the russian foreign minister said yesterday r
outreach to the united states. >> definitely, i think in one sense there's been a lot between the two on this so-called red line and i think netanyahu was shocked he didn't meet him. he sees a real possibility that president obama can be off -- in office and knows he needs to work with president obama on a nuclear iran but at the same time, their presentation yesterday was very effective because he really sent out an urgency saying iran could have a bomb by next summer or spring. >> you know, i look at that red line. we were just talking about this, the camera caught us. what does that exactly mean when you cross that? >> it's a threshold over which if iran passes it then military action would be necessary and then there would be an agreement. he wants president obama to lay out if iran goes over this line, i'm in for military action. >> with some very specific details that are -- >> basically what the prime minister said was if iran reaches its final stage of enrichment needed for a nuclear bomb then, you know, he would want the united states to get involved. >> okay, so the presiden
